I have joined the department of Computer Science at Drexel University in the Fall of 2007.

I had been previously worked in research, both in industry and academia, for 12 years, in the US as well as in Europe.

I am interested primarily in Software Engineering and Distributed Systems (in particular, Autonomic Computing).

More detailed information about my professional life, my research, and my personal side is available on these pages.
